When a mother loses her hair during chemotheraphy, a son gives her constant support as he helps her choose a wig.


Mum is on her way to the hospital to get "alien blobs" zapped with medicine. The alien blobs are cancer. The treatment helps, but it also makes Mum lose her hair. One day she says, "Today is wig day," and she and her son head down to Hariett's Hair, where they find wigs of all styles and sizes: big hair, short hair, spiky hair, and curly hair. Finally, Mum finds the wig she's been looking for-and it looks perfect with her jeans and leather jacket.
